Who is PC to Politics?

We are a group of returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) and advocates who believe that the Peace Corps community should participate in the political process from voting, volunteering, to running for office.

What does PC to Politics do?

Inspired by the idea that a Peace Corps volunteer’s service does not end after two years but continues throughout our lives, PC to Politics goal is to support RPCVs who are serving in or running for federal, state, and local political office. PC to Politics hopes to inspire both present and future RPCV political leaders to make a difference in public policy by using the ideals they learned as Peace Corps Volunteers. For the past 55 years, there have only been 16 Peace Corps alumni who have served at the federal level – we hope to see many, many more RPCVs jump into the political arena in the next 50 years.

Which political party do you support?

We are non-partisan and support RPCV candidates of any political party so long as they strive to emulate the Peace Corps ideals, as well as support the continued success of the Peace Corps; ensuring that future generations will have the opportunity to serve their country.

How do you support RPCV candidates?

In additional to traditional fundraising activities, we use social media, in-person events, and other ways to let the Peace Corps community and beyond know about these candidates. As RPCVs, we know and value the strength of grassroots work, and we will work our hardest to ensure that every RPCV candidate we endorse receives the highest level of support. We encourage interested parties to follow us on our various social media platforms:

 LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/7400261
